Lust in His Heart
Every time I see a Nagra piece I get lust in my heart, Jimmy Swaggart style. I think it all goes back to the old days when I produced CDs with JA and he used his Nagra D digital tape recorder. It was a great -sounding and awesome-looking recorder. Of course these days when we record, that old Nagra has, for better or worse, been replaced with a laptop or Mac mini or something else nowhere near as sexy.
My visual lust continued with a new solid-state amp from Nagra. On display in the Mirage, driving Verity's new $30,000/pair Amadis loudspeaker, was the MSA bridgeable MOSFET amplifier. Each MSA can put out 60Wpc in stereo mode or 120W when bridged. The MSA retails for $11,499.
